When I last tried this, it was such a buggy mess that I probably lost over an hour trying to fix the timeline breaks it caused. I’d recommend instead trying Shotcut.
I don’t know why people even think about using WinRAR. Linux (at least gnome desktop) comes with much better archive manager tool already.
I wouldn’t use these at all.
Why would you use this? And not Firefox.
I got used to using Chrome for videos on Linux as Firefox used to lag videos with the amount of tabs I had open, but I’ve never had problems downloading big files with Firefox.
It’s because Kdenlive has more advanced features that could prove useful. When was the last time you used it? The only thing I hate about Kdenlive is that you can’t re-arrange tracks order, which makes it confusing.
What archive files does it support? Also, I intend to start with either Linux Mint or LMDE.
For YouTube-DLG, it does a pretty good job at downloading YouTube videos I need for either Soundpad or for footage. The only problem with Soundpad is that I don’t know if it’s compatible with Proton. Quick check on ProtonDB…
I’ve heard that some Windows malware actually works correctly in Wine.
I get around this by basically never using it, the last 2 times I used Wine have been to test a sample project sent by someone applying to be on the team, and for Godot to run resedit in order to set the embedded name in a thrive release.
I’m one of the unfortunate souls that actually used KDEnlive for a project. I had three different versions on my PC, because I at the beginning had to try to fix some weird mess that was related with it not liking Gnome’s Wayland (windows did not display, color picker didn’t work and a lot stuff just didn’t want to cooperate). It segfaulted so many times (especially when doing stuff in the timeline) that I was very happy it had a good recovery feature. Also, changing properties of filters just wasn’t being immediately reflected in the preview screen. Since I constantly worked on the project for three days, only interrupting my work to sleep or going to the bathroom, I managed to have it finished before the deathline (it wasn’t a very complex nor long project (2’42’’). Just needed some chroma-keying, music, cuts (most time consuming due to crashes and the fact that I had different original footages from which I had to sort out the best (or less bad) samples) and images (a bit time consuming due to fact that I had to look for media I was legally allowed to use)).
If I ever do something like that again, for sure will I use some different software.
To fix the initial trouble I had, I switched to something other than Wayland (easily done by closing your sessions on the machine and then selecting X11 or something). So the colorpicker, windows and stuff started to be sorta useful after doing that change (segfaults and all the stuff described still occurred, though). I don’t know if it really depends on the Window Manager. It’s just very buggy software, I suppose.
Not really, there is bitchute and peertube but bitchute is really weird and the audience there is definitely not mainstream and not open source and peertube is something i don’t know much about but it is open source and decentralized but it not really like youtube
but really a open source youtube software does not really make senses as youtube is a website and the main appeal of youtube is the huge catalog of videos and creators
Many of the things I’m saying have already been said by hhyyrylainen.
I seldomly hear of Linux machines, which are not hosting some internet service, running an antivirus. WinRAR is proprietary (you put a “???” there) and there are other archive managers out there that can be used (many of them support RAR files, but seemed to struggle a bit on my machine).
An alternative to Minecraft is Minetest. Most of the content the player cares about is added with mods (Minetest at its core is a bit like a framework on which games are run) and don’t worry, if you join a server the mods needed will automatically get downloaded. I don’t play it much, because in singleplayer I feel lonely and meaningless and my latency is too high for multiplayer outside my LAN.
I played some minecraft on Linux recently, and was pleasantly surprised to find that the FTB launcher with a bunch of modpacks to select works perfectly on Linux. Though you probably won’t be able to play the non-java edition of minecraft on Linux because of Microsoft.
I thought Minecraft only had a Java edition. I’ve not heard of it since 1.8, though, so if they wrote something else recently, that’s probably the reason. I wasn’t trying to imply that Minecraft did not work on Linux, but rather suggesting a similar game that may peak some reader’s interest.
I do sometimes play Minetest, but on LAN.
Since somewhere in 2011 Minecraft Bedrock edition came out, which is a version of minecraft that uses an engine built from the ground up for minecraft, (the same the console versions use) which means that they devs can work way easier on it. However, since Java edition is way more moddable, most of the community preferred it. Combine this with how both the engines and the people working on them are different, and you get the current situation where both version have content the other doesn’t have, and a lot of redstone tricks don’t carry over. It’s a pretty messy situation.
I’ve downloaded Bedrock once to test the VR version, and it was honestly just confusing how it was just barely different, but different nonetheless.
